After being arrested following a bar fight in Scottsdale, Ariz., over the weekend, Jason London insists the incident isn’t what it seems.

“The details of the events leading up to the incident are still being worked out with the help of many eyewitness testimonies; people who were there with Jason for the duration of the evening and with the recollection Jason does have. We will undoubtedly get to the bottom of the specifics. Neither Jason nor any of the witnesses we have spoken to have any recollection of anything even feeling like it was going south,” according to a statement released by London’s rep.

The statement claims that “excessive force” was used by the four bouncers during the altercation at the Martini Ranch.

The statement continues: “Bars are institutions where there are drunk people who are sometimes inappropriate and even violent. It is the bouncers’ job to remove the problem and if it is necessary, to use force in order to secure the safety of the establishment and patrons. It is not acceptable to retaliate with brutality once that has been accomplished.”

London’s injuries include “a right orbital fracture, a right maxillary sinus fracture, multiple contusions, multiple hematomas and concussion.”
